We Talk

We talk.
He spurs it on
It does not aid the task at hand.
But it keeps him going, I think.

We talk.
We are friends.
I think he wishes something else.
I do not know if I wish that.

We talk.
We talk about Lieutenants Paris and Torres
We talk about Captain Janeway.
We talk about Voyager's crew in general.

We talk.
I used to find it annoying.
But then I did not mind.
Now I enjoy it.

We talk.
That is all we do for now.
We may do more at a later time.
But for now I am content, and so is he.

We talk.
